Firstly, I'm really sorry for bringing up a Christmas song at this time of year. There must be other songs which use this technique, but I can't for the life of me think which ones...

Basically, what playing technique is used to get those very abrupt chords?

It's probably a very noobish question... but it's got to be asked.

(here if you don't remember the song, or are trying to forget: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4XKkdygUqs)

Know there was another one! It features heavily in this song too: http://www.last.fm/music/Embrace/_/The+Way+I+Do

Edit: also . Wrong subforum? Sorry
